Link Soup
* Elfquest fan trailer looks reasonably visually accurate, but where are the elf-dudes? Want Skywise!
* I like big butts and I cannot lie, but is there some evolutionary reason as to why? Best answer thread evar.

Daily Science
Scientists from the School of Pharmacy at Queen's University Belfast and Almac Discovery Ltd have developed a new treatment for cancer which rather than attacking tumours directly, prevents the growth of new blood vessels in tumours, starving them of oxygen and nutrients, thereby preventing their growth.

Clothesline Project. I may swing by Windsor Button on the way home. A nap. Writing until time to leave for Diesel, the Diesel, and I think feste_sylvain wanted to catch a movie. This week is a blur, I'm just warning you.

I wasn't able to view the article you referenced, but Avastin and Erbitux (Martha Stewart's little investment)both act by preventing the growth of blood vessels, effectively starving the tumor in some types of cancer. They've been around for several years. I'd love to know what's new in that study.

'Best answer thread evar.'

When a girl walks in with an itty-bitty waist and a round thing in your face you get vital evolutionary information that acts as a fairly accurate indicator of overall health.

And sprung. You also get sprung.

And it just gets better from there.

That reddit thread was wonderful, and now I am trying to sing it.

Something is wrong with the Science link. Also, here's this about using viruses to fight cancer.

Also, gender-swapped JLA seems like a thing you would enjoy.

ETA: Ironic that I'm telling you about a problem with HTML and I screw up my own.

Over twenty years ago, I read a huge article in Time Magazine about researchers infecting cancer patients with other diseases, (which disease depended upon the type of cancer) and the disease ramped up the patient's immune system, making it strong enough, or something, to fight the cancer at the same time. This sounded amazingly sensible, but then it was gone, and I never heard anything more about it. I'm delighted to see this report, because it's so similar in concept.
